    The irony… http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2014/7/5/hobby-lobby-guantanamo.html

    Lawyers for two Guantanamo Bay detainees have filed motions asking a U.S. court to block officials from preventing the inmates from taking part in communal prayers during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The lawyers argue that – in light of the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision – the detainees’ rights are protected under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

    The motions were filed this week with the Washington D.C. district court on behalf of Emad Hassan of Yemen and Ahmed Rabbani of Pakistan. U.K.-based human rights group Reprieve said both men asked for the intervention after military officials at the prison “prevented them from praying communally during Ramadan.”

    I smile just crept across my face…

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/cuellar-slams-obama-border-crisis Seriously Congressman? Where were you and YOUR state in asking for assistance before now? Where were YOU in pressuring your fellow congress to pass immigration reform? WTF is wrong with these people?? ( That was a rhetorical question)

    • July 6, 2014 at 2:59 pm

      But nooo. President Obama needed to anticipate this problem and fix it before it got to this level. Never mind that an immigration bill sitting on Boehner’s desk for over a year might have helped. Never mind that Cueller who allegedly has his finger on the pulse could have kept the President informed as to what was happening and offered some solutions.

      Nope The President is at fault for not being a soothsayer and not getting Congress to do it’s job. Honestly these people get on my last nerve.

        OF COURSE….ANYONE WHO BLAMES PBO FOR THE CHILDREN CROSSING THE BORDER HAS MISPLACED THEIR MARBLES SOMEWHERE. THESE PRECIOUS CHILDREN NEED TO BE LOVED AND WELCOMED AND TREATED PROPERLY UNTIL SOLUTIONS ARE FOUND FOR THEM…OBVIOUSLY CENTRAL AMERICA IS SPINNING IN A WICKED CESSPOOL OF VIOLENCE. I DO…WITH ALL MY HEART THINK THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO VISIT A BORDER SHELTER AS COMFORTER-AND-CHIEF…THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT….SHOWING COMPLETE COMPASSION IS SO IMPORTANT AT THIS TIME!

    DF,

    I tweeted your link to toon on last thread:

    Looks like @nytimes has finally seen the light. Last week’s editorial board praised President Obama’s “wisdom” on Syria, this week highlights the real IRS “scandal.”

    Why is everyone so quiet today – too much Independence weekend fun, or early moping because the long weekend is over?

      I once read somewhere that the largest incidence of post-holiday depression occurs after 4th of July, not Christmas as I would have thought. So your latter assessment might be very accurate.

    • July 6, 2014 at 4:20 pm

      Quiet, indeed. I am busily preparing for a much anticipated visit from one of my older brothers, who is driving up tomorrow from No. CA. Expect his arrival late tomorrow, and he has the week to stay and visit. This is the first visit from any of my family (daughter doesn’t count on this one as she helped with the move), and so, it will be fun! He is a musician, so we have scheduled his talent for a singalong with the retirement community on Thursday late afternoon, so lots of people looking forward to music and singing! More fun!

        An entire week’s visit, eh? I guess that means you’ve been busy shopping and baking and ….. Have a wonderful, wonderful time together! It’s thoughtful of you to share him with your neighbours, and I bet you’ll all have a fun sing-along time.

        Well put your feet up now, Africa, as they’ll probably be hurried and flurried over the next few days. My Sunday’s cool! I’m fortunate enough to be able to do what I want, when I want most of the time, so I can’t really complain if/when my day doesn’t meet expectations. :grin:

    Didn’t Warren say that she is not running in 2016? I don’t recall then Senator Obama stating in 2006 that he was not going to run for President in 2008. That’s a key difference between the two.

    Meanwhile, O’Malley hasn’t said that he’s not going to run….

    Hi TODERS!!! I am sure many of you also received this email from Emily’s List:
    “Add your name if you agree with Hillary- Hillary Clinton called the Supreme Court’s devastating decision on Birth Control “deeply disturbing”, and a “really bad slippery slope.” If you agree that women should be able to make their own health decisions, stand With Hillary.”

    This is the response I sent them:
    I will stand with My President on this. Just because Hillary is a women does not make her the spokesperson for all of us females.
    “Deeply disturbing?” That is it?
    How about this comment.
    ” No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doen’t mean you can force other to live by your own beliefs.” President Barack Obama

        July 6, 2014 at 5:33 pm

        Great push back, IMO. Frustrating, but not surprising, they are asking people to stand with Hillary, who never seems to ‘stand’ for anything until others are standing first!

    • 62 jackiegrumbacher
      July 6, 2014 at 5:41 pm

      Carla, you are magnificent for writing that and I am clapping for you right now. When Clinton made that nothing statement, I asked what the hell that meant. Where’s her solution? I find my neighbor’s dog disturbing sometimes, but that word doesn’t begin to describe the magnitude of what the right wing of the Supreme Court did this week. It’s infuriating beyond words that people take pathetic little efforts and blow them up into great things and take the great things and diminish them. Thank you for setting them straight.

    • July 6, 2014 at 5:51 pm

      Great response, Dr. Sweet! I think Hillary Clinton supporters are not doing her any favor by trying to elevate her above a sitting Democratic President. There is still 21/2 years left on President Obama’s term. All real Democrats should be focused on electing Democratic majorities in Congress, in 2014, to end GOP obstructionism and help President Obama continue to advance the interests of all Americans.

    David Gregory is a little, lying POS. MTP needs to be cancelled, or get a moderator that isn’t a damn GOP shilling mouthpiece!

    The White House Nails David Gregory For Using Republican Misinformation on Immigration

    http://www.politicususa.com/2014/07/06/white-house-nails-david-gregory-republican-misinformation-immigration.html

      Thank you for posting desertflower,

      Just read the transcript, and Gregory is a rethug repuke in full bloom.

      The people have to move (voice their complaints) to get some of this crap removed from the air. MTP would have to receive hundreds of thousands complaints, from the public, for them to rethink this propaganda that they put on TV.

      Gregory’s position is over due for a shut down, “we the people can do it” if we move forward, and make our complaints known.

      Roman Catholic Scientists in the early part of 1960 didn’t find any contradictions on Contraceptives. They gave their OK and One man, the Pope then, opined on this and his version of SIN interpretation has lasted this long. Had the pills been made from get go for men…..That Pope would have honored The Clergy Scientists findings as recommended then.

        So true Nena – I lived through the hope of many friends followed by their massive disappointment – and it signaled the departure of many of those people from the church they thought was going to join reality.
